A Textbook Of Vector Analysis, written by two mathematicians, explains the important elements of vectors that are extensively used in fields like Physics and Engineering.
A Textbook Of Vector Analysis details the concept of vector analysis that contains information about the quantities with magnitude and direction, which are important in the fields of celestial navigation and electromagnetic wave theory.
The authors touch upon the basic topics related to vector analysis in the chapters of the book. The book contains chapters titled Multiplication of Vectors by Scalars, Statics with Vectors, Geometry with Vectors Affine Geometry, Addition of Vectors, Applications to Metric Geometry, Scalar Product, Vector Product and Scalar Triple Product, Some Miscellaneous Topics, Geometry with Cartesian Coordinates, Differential Operators, Vector Valued Functions of Scalar Variables, and Integral Transformations.
The readers can find many answers to their questions in A Textbook of Vector Analysis and refer to the exercises for better understanding of the concepts.
